Path of the Mensch has been customized for Conservative Congregations.

The Jewish tradition of Mussar offers the Jewish world a deep and rich experience of spirituality. In this introductory program, participants are brought into a deep exploration of the nine most important soul-traits or middot. The text, which every participant receives, is the inspiring book, Everyday Holiness, by Alan Morinis, Founder of The Mussar Institute. Based on the text, participants are guided through a weekly study of one middah. Through discussions in a safe, small group of like-minded seekers, led by a facilitator trained by The Mussar Institute, participants explore and create their own personal life curriculum.

Each participant receives a copy of Everyday Holiness to guide their study with weekly lessons. It is our consistent experience that the wisdom of Mussar helps people develop awareness and wisdom for living and often leads to spiritual transformation.

Congregations receive a comprehensive package of educational and spiritual tools including suggested Newsletter Text and a One-Hour Meeting to Introduce the Course.
